Looking at the edge of the frame, the black outer masked part it looks (measured SNR in Iris) better than the 5D3 and perhaps even a trace better than the 1DX (5.0 vs 5.3 ADU and 6D also has just a trace more MP) but not close to an Exmor. It might have about the best DR at low ISO that Canon has made so far, maybe about like the 1Ds3. Seems like the 6D,1Ds3,1DX will be Canon's best for low ISO DR most likely. Still a far cry, from Exmor/Aptina/etc., as expected.
Does make their 5D3 effort look just a bit weak sensor-wise. It can hardly be that it needed expensive 1DX tech now can it?
Anyway, hopefully this is not off of the new fab line otherwise.... may be YEARS before Canon ever catches up. I doubt it is the new line though. Looks like it is maybe just a 1DX-fab variant (although need to see what it does at high iso too first).
But it's not a bad result for the 6D just not state of the art (at least not at low ISO, perhaps at high) in this day and age.
